BIOGRAPHY

FriiStyle Gahspol aka “Frii”

 

Born Christopher Antonio Elliott, FriiStyle Gahspol aka “Frii”, has created quite a niche for himself as a speaker, spoken word poet, and Christian HipHop artist. A native of New Haven, Connecticut, Frii is a talented lyricist who got his start performing spoken word at the world famous Apollo Theater, as well as the historic Nuyorican Poets Cafe in New York. Combining his love for spoken word and music, Frii would later record music with Grammy and Multi-Platinum award winner Edwin Ramos Jr. His music and poetry have gained critical appeal, and he has since been called upon to grace the Apollo Theater stage in 2013, 2015 and 2017, a slew of nationally acclaimed music festivals and award ceremonies throughout the USA, all the way to the UK in 2018. 

 

Although born in Connecticut, FriiStyle Gahspol was raised between there and Virginia. He speaks with a northern accent, but at times you can hear that southern swag come out in his music. Frii’s music seeks to inspire people to be the best version of themselves as possible. Hip-hop and spoken word are just some of the avenues he tries to accomplish that. His music and poetry speaks of God, and the demons he faces in everyday life, but also teaching mankind that we are stronger than we think. He had always known God would use his life to reach the world in a unique way. 

 

He loves family and loves laughing. His favorite place to pray is in his car, where he gets to yell as loud as he wants without bothering anybody else. It gets pretty loud and intense at times in that car. Strengthened by his faith in God, and supported by his faithful wife and children, he lives by this declaration: "I am a monolith, I will not be broken. I am a tall tree, I will not be shaken. I am love. I am peace. I am joy. I know exactly who I am."
